Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to a contact dermatitis.

I suggest using antihistamines such Cetirizine 10 mg daily.

I also suggest using Calamine lotion for local application at the rash area.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
